48st/Guadalupe, Phoenix, AZ
This is a 3 mile fitness hike-up and across the Marcos De Niza ridgeline to the stone houses and then back to the Pima parking lot. We average a speed of 3 miles an hour and therefore strive to complete the hike in 1 hour. We usual end in the dark so a headlight is necessary.
Pima Canyon is located at 9904 S. 48th Street near Guadalupe Road.
